Figurative Sculpture by Borsheim
Perhaps if life were simple, I would be drawn to complexity. But for now, I sculpted Reginald to give me peace and a little tranquility. The male figure is shapely and pleasing to the eye, but he is not frozen. I wanted to portray a man walking (the man Reginald who modeled for me did not have a car and walked EVERYWHERE), turning slightly as if something caught his attention. He exists simply in a moment of life and I wanted to appreciate such moments.
This bronze figurative sculpture is also shown here in clay (the green figure images below), prior to molding and bronze casting. I thought I would leave these images here so you could see the differences between the piece in clay vs. bronze. (I usually offer pre-casting/introductory discounts to help me get an edition started.) This is a limited edition of 20 bronze.
